"I took two years of Music Theory over forty years ago!! And now I am back for private violin lessons!! Feeling right at home, as I did all those years ago ..."
Individual lessons are available to adult beginners, those returning to an instrument that they took as a child, and those who have continued to play through adulthood. We have faculty members with many years of experience and interest in working with adult students. See the Music section for available individual lessons.
Especially for Adults: Short-Term Lessons!
Not sure about whether or not you want to commit long-term to an individual lesson? Then take a 6-week starter block of lessons! These trial lessons are available with select Hochstein faculty members and are scheduled through an advisement/orientation session with a Dean staff member.
"This is the 2nd 'short' course I've taken (The other was a 5-week intro to guitar). Love the idea of the short intro courses. You're not locked into a long series of lessons. If you enjoy the instrument, you can arrange for a full semester of classes."
